not numerous, and future observers may discover connecting links, We do not re-
collect that ifc has any smell, nor do we find any note indicating that it is a muslcy
plant, like the last and all the following species, from which, if inodorous, it is pro-
bably quite Distinct.

Chiefly distinguished from the last by being much more robust and leafy, and
much less hairy, by having a strong musky smell, by the bifid posterior petals, and
by the larger hairy fruit. Both species, however, are imperfectly known, and, like
all this group, require careful examination and comparison in the living state.
